Jason Halvorsen

Captain

Captain Jason’s passion for travel began at a very young age. Before he started kindergarten Jason had visited over 30 of the US states with his parents. The family settled in Fort Lauderdale when he turned 5 which is where another passion began, one for the ocean within the maritime community. Through Jason’s high school education he attended Marine Tech School studies and managed to complete a Marine Mechanics Degree whilst juggling his regular studies. Jason was working on yachts by 16, and earned his first Captains license at 19. Jason started his career on commercial charter and sight seeing boats, and by 21 was the 1st Mate/ 2nd Captain of a 500 passenger commercial boat in New York City. During his young and busy career Jason owned a yacht management company, has been captain on private and charter yachts, commercially towed, and has also been a salvage master (where he narrowly avoided the local alligators while spending 45 days as master salvage diver in Louisiana after Hurricane Katrina!). In his time off the water, Jason enjoys traveling with his wife and young daughter, and continues traveling throughout the US and Europe as often as his busy schedule allows. At home in the US, Jason enjoys customizing and restoring old cars and motor cycles (he has built 2 custom Harleys and restored a 1976 Ford F100) but his biggest passion of all is food: cooking it, eating it and traveling to restaurants to eat and learn new techniques. After a resent Shark Tagging Expedition onboard M/Y Marcato, Jason has taken on a roll as Maritime Advisor for a Non-profit Marine Scientific Organization. Jason’s diverse experiences and interests inside and out of the yachting industry makes him a friendly, versatile, and dynamic member of the crew aboard M/Y Marcato. Captain Jason aspires to give all guests on board an exceptional experience, so please feel free to let him know any other way we can make your vacation with us truly unforgettable or just to have a good old chat.. another of Captain Jason’s hobbies and one he’s rather good at!
